To reach higher engagement is to have greater access to consciousness within the individual. You cannot learn it, you cannot push it, you cannot pull it, nor dangle incentives in front of it. To increase its flow, you must become it, by letting go that which is restricting its flow.
A recent Gallup Report*
Only 14 per cent of employees in Australia and New Zealand are ‘engaged’ in their jobs. Employees who work with passion and feel a profound connection to their company. They drive innovation and move the organisation forward.
An overwhelming 71 per cent are ‘disengaged’. These employees are essentially “checked-out”. They’re sleepwalking through their workday, putting time – but not energy or passion into their work.
As many as 15 per cent are ‘actively disengaged’. These employees aren’t just unhappy at work; they’re busy acting out their unhappiness. Every day, these workers undermine what their engaged co-workers accomplish.
With ‘only one in five leaders engaged in the jobs’. That is 80 per cent of key decision-makers across the organisation. (*State of the Global Workplace Gallup Report 2017)
Also according to Gallup, disengaged employees have 37% higher absenteeism, 18% lower productivity and 15% lower profitability. When that translates into dollars, you’re looking at the cost of 34% of a disengaged employee’s annual salary, or $3,400 for every $10,000 they make. That is a lot of money!
Worldwide research shows that pervasive tension occurs within individuals, at all levels throughout the organisation.
When tension is ignored, it denies organisations millions in unrealised revenues; resulting in massive employee disengagement and unreached productivity, staff health issues, and absenteeism.
We now know that the degree of negative tension constraining the individual – is equal to the degree of disengagement that they are experiencing at home and in the workplace.
Managing or seeking relief from inner-tension sounds great in the short term. Let’s face it – disengagement is still contained.
The individual has to be willing to learn how to release it and let it go.
Clarity is an incredibly simple yet effective method for ‘releasing or letting go’ of pervasive inner-tension – at the same time increasing receptivity – starting from just 5-minutes a day on a regular basis.
We can show you how easily leadership. managers and employees ‘buy into’ Clarity, as a personal life skill that they value – and the organisation can quickly gain new levels of productivity…
As a leader, you need to take action to address employee disengagement. If not, the vision you have for your organisation can turn into a blurry outline, rather than the clear progressive steps – you had envisioned.
The Gallup Reports referred to paint a sad picture for both leadership and stakeholders, one being that every Monday morning you are paying employees, at all levels of the organisation the equivalent of a full tank of fuel, and only receiving around 14% of the fuel in the tank.
Therefore your vision for the organisation, along with potential new growth opportunities will be seriously restricted, denying you a healthy return on investment.
Why? Because all of your old and new strategic planning, initiatives, and technical training, still need to get through this internal pipeline that is around 86% restricted by all levels of employee disengagement.
However, to the enlightened leader, all the above points to a golden, golden opportunity – but only if action is taken!

Stuart will provide you with a personal report to where your current vision is at – exactly where and how the disengagement occurs. Plus a proven letting-go or unblocking method already implemented in many organisations, including Fortune 500 companies.
Stuart is the Australian born founder and author of Clarity.
As one of the most experienced instructors in the field of Leadership Engagement, Stuart has travelled the world for the last 40 years, presenting Clarity as a practical and measurable method to progressively clear the mind for higher personal and business engagement (increasing consciousness). He has personally facilitated over 500 Senior PETRONAS Executives in Malaysia.
“The organisational Soul needs to balance the receptive (inspiration) with the technical (business), to reach its full potential”.
Countries in which Stuart has introduced Clarity include: Australia, United States, Canada, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Asia (Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, China, South Korea and Vietnam). He is currently based in Perth, Australia.
“We often get asked can you get the training program into one day and get the same results. The answer is that it usually takes us one day to get the group calm and focused and in a place they can absorb, retain and apply new knowledge.
This is particularly in respect to leadership programs. I’m sure you could teach tactile skills (how to use a new drill) without being clear and focused but you have no chance of changing and or modify behaviours or getting buy in to new strategy, if the participant is not calm and clear”.
Richard Kelly, Vice President, Executive Perspectives
“In our role as one of the biggest training organisations in Australasia of organisational coaches, clarity is integral to our practice.
We worked with Stuart and Clarity for a number of years, to guide and encourage coaches to learn this very important practice”.
Dr Hilary Armstrong, Director of Education, Institute of Executive Coaching Leadership, Australia
“I was too busy being busy to allow myself any quiet or reflective time. Indeed, I was one of those who would constantly bemoan the fact that there was never enough time to plan or prepare, I was always too enmeshed in the problem/solution cycle to take the time to find a way out of it.
That was until I met Stuart Mackay, the founder of Clarity”.
Stephen Johnston, CEO, Video Ezy, previously MD, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, Author of “What Do You Do For A Living?” A Bold New Vision For Leaders.
Here is a short list of organisations we have had the pleasure of engaging with, over the last 40 years.
Releasing negative tension within individuals to create ‘higher engagement’ may sound like a slightly abstract concept – it is not.
Below in this brief report, you will see how Clarity conducted just 3-modules with a group of 44 senior executives in a Fortune 500 company, and after practicing Clarity, it achieved:
The organisation report delivers a range of strategic indicators and is one of the deepest insights into measuring group engagement available.
It captures the progress of the group engagement monthly, whilst all personal data remains confidential, unless employee’s permission is granted.
These groups are not just measured by the amount of clarity gained, also through their willingness to progress and receive the rewards of higher engagement/ growth potential.
Clarity is positioned to create and measure the shift to a higher engaged organisation in the shortest and most cost effective way.
By increasing their response-ability rate and decreasing time spent on the blur factor will create more focused and valuable time for family, work and the broader community.
My guarantee: If you feel Clarity is not right for you within 30-days, just email me and I will happily refund your money.
